Soulmate

Hill Top Stage

22nd Nov | 8:45 PM

It might surprise many that music rooted in the blues finds expression in India. It’s even more surprising perhaps that the flag bearers on the blues in India come not from its sprawling metros but from a small north eastern city called Shillong.

It is here that you’ll find India’s finest blues band, wilfully and happily oblivious of the country’s dominant soundscapes but at the same time enriching it with the triumphant sounds and grooves of the blues and blues derived rock, funk, soul and R&B. They call themselves SOULMATE and don’t bother asking them why they chose the blues because you ought to know better - ‘the blues chose them’.

Soulmate was formed in October 2003 by Rudy Wallang and Tipriti Kharbangar and their sound is a sonic canvas grounded in Rudy’s elegant blues guitar that channels Buddy Guy, Albert Collins, Jimi Hendrix, Muddy Waters and the Three Kings but also embracing every sound that Tipriti’s extensive vocal range could accommodate, from Koko Taylor, Etta James and Nina Simone to the recent addition of the earthy sounds of Khasi folk music.

Dualist Inquiry

Concert Area

24th Nov | 7:00 PM

Sahej Bakshi, better known as Dualist Inquiry, rose to prominence in what was then an amorphous Indian independent music scene, capturing fans at the intersection of guitar music and rhythmic electronic dance, with a sound that soon came to define his identity as a live act. Tipped as the leader of the new wave of Indian electronica, Dualist Inquiry helped break down doors at a time when rigidity seemed all but certain to dominate independent music.

The next two years, turned out to be the most challenging, with his internal and external worlds colliding. In an effort to resist being compartmentalized, Bakshi burrowed deep to explore a new sonic playground, going on to write and release another full-length album, 2016’s Dreamcatcher, a more wholesome, pop-oriented album pre-dated regional trends and took both critics and fans by surprise.

By 2017, a pair of ambitious full length albums and headlining almost every major stage in India, Bakshi retreated into solitude with a conscious goal to learn and evolve. Eventually, the time away led to the birth of boxout.fm, an online community radio station he co-founded alongside DJ MoCity, a platform that is making noise for all the correct reasons and has rightfully become a pillar for community-supported initiatives in music. The inspiration garnered from this tangential area of work helped birthed a brand-new chapter for Dualist Inquiry.

their music being copied and distributed. They have made their music available for download on their official website.
